...other things

We have had a mother deer and her twin fawns in our yard lately. I've been trying get a picture of them, but I haven't gotten a good one yet. Yesterday the fawns were leaping and playing like puppies. So cute! They are still very small and spotted. The kids love it when they come around.

Thanks to ALL THIS RAIN, we haven't been able to seed the yard yet. No seed + all rain = MUCH MUD. Last night just before dinner, Tristan got outside and got stuck, no joke, knee deep in mud. Will tried to help him out, but he ended up getting stuck too. By the time I pulled them out they were both in dire need of a shower. But they had so much fun!

Last night I was banned from a forum that I've been following since the Little April Rose story broke. Apparently I posted something that was offensive to the admins, cause I was booted within a few hours. :-( This is a very strange experience for me, as I have never before been asked to leave (let alone banned!) from anything in my life, online or otherwise! I feel as though I've been misunderstood and... It's weird, cause on one hand I tell myself, "It was an ONLINE FORUM. I didn't actually know anyone there IRL. This is no great loss." But on the other hand, I miss the conversations and the funny things people would say. I felt like I "knew" some of the moms on there, and now I've been politely but firmly pushed aside, as if my thoughts and ideas are no longer wanted or valid. Anyway. Enough on that.

Tomorrow is supposed to be our big family reunion in Philly, but due to the rain, they might cancel. I'm bummed! I'd been looking forward to it for awhile. Unlike some people, I actually like my extended family and enjoy hanging out with them!

I can't believe it's June 19th. This weather! What is with it? It's ridiculous! If it's been above 70 at all in the past week, I didn't know it! I think it's about 60˙ right now. The lake will never get warm enough to swim in at this rate!

Ohhhh, I ordered Will's K curriculum two days ago. I'm totally excited! Hallie was mad when she found out that she didn't get any school books ordered. I have a feeling that I'm actually going to have TWO K students this fall... LOL! As long as she's having fun, it's okay with me.

Have a great rainy Friday, everyone!


  1. I can't believe you got banned. You rebel! I would feel really weird about that, too. It was good to see you last week. Hope you get to go to your reunion in spite of this crazy weather!
